William Elisha Stoker to Elizabeth E. Stoker, November 15, 1862 (Page 1)
In the fall of 1862, private William E. Stoker of the 18th Texas Volunteer Infantry hoped that the rumor of an “aramistis between the north and south” was true. Yet, Stoker did not feel sure of anything he had heard, because many rumors contradicted each other. Stoker, who was running out of clothes for the upcoming winter, because of insufficient supply from the Confederate army, wrote home for Betty to send him all she could. Private Stoker also longed for any news of home, for he worried about his hogs and how Betty would do with the family farm in the upcoming months. (By David Gillespie)
